What grass do you mean, mate? A simple grass texture to cover the terrain or a 3D grass, which can be switched on/off in the game?

If you're talking about the 3D grass, there is no need to do anything in 3ds Max. The grass is rendered directly to the .MAP file by PiBoSo's fbx2edf tool or his special plug-in for 3ds Max 2009/2010. The 3D blades will "grow" on your grass texture based on the settings in your_grass_texture_name.GRS file.

For details on how to add 3D grass, please refer to http://docs.piboso.com/wiki/index.php?title=Track_Creation_Guide (3D Grass section) and, as I said above, http://forum.kartracing-pro.com/index.php?topic=7763.0

ARI, mate, you asked me the same question like 3 weeks ago. I don't do Discord. You can upload screenshots to illustrate the issue or send me a PM if you don't wish others to see your project.

Idont know how to place grass around this. in the tutorial he showed how to bridge the grass, but not how to place it around the track.

You create it the same way as you create the kerbs!
Make a line on the edge of your track, then outline it, connect it, create a surface and it is done

Thx, I'm also having an issue with exporting to .map and .trp. It says grass.tga is not to the power of 2. When I go to tracked after it finally finished exporting, only parts of the grass show up and nothing else

Before exporting to .MAP/.TRP, check the width x height of your textures.

Supported texture formats:
  • truecolor TGA
  • truecolor BMP
  • DXT1, DXT3 or DXT5 DDS
Every texture must have power of 2 (eg: 256, 512, 1024, 2048) dimensions. They can be rectangular (eg: 32x128)

I have the track complete and I exported it to .map and .trp but when I go to tracked this is all it shows. I still put it into the game and when I spawn, im underneath the map.

Looks like you don't have any surfaces there. Have you defined trkasph, trkgras, etc.? Have you checked that the units and scale are OK?

In TrackED, you should see something like this:

For the surfaces, check the track creation guide provided by PiBoSo in this section please.
For the size, there is a little hammer on the right side of 3ds Max. You can check the dimensions of your objects there.
